I didn't know how to concisely put this in the thread title, but I did a backup with Time Machine and did a clean install of Lion. I set up a new user and then I only want to restore my music and iPhoto library. When I click on "Enter Time Machine" all of my old backups from previous to my clean install show up as "purple" in color and I cannot access all of the files on the time machine. I believe this is because I am not authenticate as the user? For example, I can't see the desktop, etc. How can I authenticate my old backups? Is there something else I am missing?
